I’m (slowly) reading through zshexpn and playing with things to learn.  This does not work:

> pedz@MysticSlate my-play-dir % echo /this/is/a/../../path
> /this/is/a/../../path
> pedz@MysticSlate my-play-dir % echo !$:P
> zsh: illegal modifier: P

even if the file specified exists

but this does:

> pedz@MysticSlate my-play-dir % echo /this/is/a/../../path
> /this/is/a/../../path
> pedz@MysticSlate my-play-dir % echo !$:A
> echo /this/path
> /this/path

Is this a documentation bug, code bug, or my misunderstanding?

Thank you,
pedz

I think it just got missed out of the history modifiers, which are
handled in a different place from the modifiers in the case of glob
qualifiers and vaariables.

Thanks for fixing this.  Test added in 030440d5b7bfd2968138836e962f1ef61ea0bae8.

Can «zgetcwd()» return an empty string?  If that's possible, the
condition will be undefined behaviour («""[-1]»).

Not in a sane world, but there are cases where we can't work out the
current directory.  I think we return "." then, in fact.  But a bit of
safety probably wouldn't hurt --- applying [-1] to functions arguably
isn't top class style.

How about this, then?
